Fairytales DO come true as evidenced in the recent wedding between, now, Dayna Raquel Perez Grimm and David Perez Grimm. Dayna, a previous cast member at Disney World, always dreamed that “one day her prince would come” – little did she know she would meet him in her best friend’s wedding! Rewind to the wedding between her college best friend and her now brother in-law when Dayna stood as a bridesmaid and David stood as a groomsmen. These bridal party members hit it off immediately and one year later, the two were inseparable. David re-embarked on Dayna’s Disney dream as he popped the question in front of all of their friends and family at her absolute favorite fireworks show, Wishes, at Magic Kingdom at Disney World.
The couple celebrated their nuptials in Austin, Texas at the Hacienda del Lago. They married in an outdoor ceremony under a canopy of trees adorned with hanging white lanterns. Splashes of cobalt blue bridesmaid gowns and bouquets of ivory and pink flowers created a pop of color in the sea of beauty. Dayna shined as a stunning princess in her Maggie Sottero gown — a natural waist ball-gown with a strapless, sweetheart neckline, embellished with intricate beading and embroidery from the top of bodice to tip of the lace hem. Guests sipped on his and hers specialty cocktails: Caramelized Pineapple Mojitos & Blackberry Whiskey Lemonade and danced the night away!
Both Dayna and David’s wish to thank both of their incredible parents for helping create their dream day.
These high school sweethearts had the most swoon-worthy wedding in Boerne, Texas. We are truly in love with every impeccable detail of this special day, but most importantly, we are in awe of this stunning Molly’s Bridal bride donning a 3/4 sleeve lace, natural waist gown with bateau neckline and tiered skirt by Mikaella. What an incredible depiction of true love captured in every photo by Bend the Light Photography. Congratulations to the beautiful couple, Shelby and Derek!
#FlashbackFriday to last summer’s breathtaking nuptials between Katie and Rien at the Warwick Melrose Hotel. Katie stunned her groom and guests in a beautiful Mikaella Bridal, A-line gown of chantilly lace, adorned with a satin sash and floral brooch at the natural waist. A strapless, scooped neckline was embellished by an added cap-sleeve lace bolero creating an essence of pure, timeless and classic beauty!
“I wanted to share my experience of picking a wedding gown as a plus sized bride. I honestly waited longer than I should have to pick my gown because I was terrified. I felt that when I would go into a bridal shop, nothing would fit, noses would be turned up to me, and I would end up crying at a time that should be special (all in front of my best friends, sister, and mom). This sounded pretty horrible, so I just didn’t do it for months. Knowing that I needed to do this, I searched and found a shop in Dallas called A Curvy Bride *Now known as Molly’s Bridal*. I went in by myself for my first visit. I didn’t want to have any of my fears come up in front of anyone. I spoke with their Sales Rep and she asked me my vision and I explained it to her, I told her my fears, the part of my body that I was most self-conscious about and I told her I needed to set a time to try the gowns on in front of my nearest & dearest women. She calmed my fear by explaining that every sample gown in their location would fit me and she began to come up with a solution that would allow me to feel comfortable and beautiful on our wedding day. She NAILED IT. I loved my dress. I comfortable and beautiful the entire night. The dress I found was sleeveless and I DID NOT want to show my arms, so they simply added sleeves. I had no idea how easy and fun this process would be for me. The dress was beautiful, timely, and conservative-everything I desired. If you’re a plus size bride and interested check out A Curvy Bride in Dallas.”
I loved our wedding and I love being married. If interested, below is a list of the vendors we used.
